Would you swap 3 unwanted gifts for an iPod this Christmas? (Yep, so would we ;))

According to a Gumtree survey last year we’re likely to get at least two unwanted gifts this Christmas worth as much as £48 each.

So, applying a terribly complicated algorithm (dividing the sum of the problem by a bakers dozen, taking away the square root of X-box and adding a pinch of salt) we worked out that if you took just 3 of these unwanted gifts, and put their value together as a group gift you’d have £144 and could buy yourself an iPod instead.

As an addendum to this brilliant idea, we had a whip-round the office this afternoon to check out some of our worst unwanted Christmas gifts, and here are the top 5:

Shareagift Team’s worst ever Christmas gifts:

  • Black and Decker drill bit
  • Grow your own boyfriend
  • Fetus cookie cutter (no joke, receiver was pregnant at the time)
  • Twat mug (this is contentious – I love this gift)
  • A home-made shoe

So there you have it. If you want to avoid unwrapping a novelty baking instrument come December 25th, we suggest you get onto Shareagift immediately and ask your friends and family to chip in for what you really want!

Or, yes, if you're really lucky, and you've been immaculately behaved all year long, it's just possible Santa might leave a pair of these designer footwear items in your stocking this year ;)
